Netter’s Neuroscience Flash Cards 2nd Edition PDF Free Download
Netter’s Neuroscience Flash Cards consists of selected illustrations from Netter’s Atlas of Neuroscience, second edition, published in 2009. Reference to the corresponding figure number in the Atlas can be found on the front of each card. Relevant structures are labeled on the front of each flash card illustration with A, B, C, and so forth. On the back of the flash card is a list of all labeled structures. In some instances, such as the illustration of the cranial nerves, the schematic of hypothalamic nuclei, or the limbic forebrain structures, the labels are comprehensive enough to include all of the major components, providing the student an opportunity to test his/her knowledge in a more thorough fashion than with just a few labels. In addition to the list of labeled structures, the back of the flash card also includes a comment. The comments consist of two types of information: (1) organizational information about the illustration that provides a summary of the structure or system whose components are labeled on the front (e.g., a brief summary of visual system projections and their functional role on the flash card demonstrating the extent of retinal projections); (2) brief discussion of points of clinical relevance to the illustration on the front of the flash card. Approximately half of the flash cards have comments that address the former, and half have clinical comments. The choice of comments on the back was determined by the author’s consideration of what type of information would be most useful to a student trying to master the challenging field of neuroscience. Netter’s Atlas of Neuroscience, second edition, contains extensive clinical comments, in contrast to the first edition. For the more detailed clinical points, the Atlas itself is the appropriate source.
